As discussed repeatedly on this blog through the years there is no “magic” box that can be plugged into your network to guarantee invulnerability to hacking and 100% uptime. If it were that simple Amazon.com would carry the boxes and there would be no need for Konsultek and its technology partners such as Fortinet.
Having a secure network is paramount for business success today. Whether you are an law office, school, university or healthcare provider you need to be able to securely sen and and receive email, transfer funds, manage inventory and access records. In many cases these capabilities must be available 24X7X365 and that means that holistic network security is essential for business continuity.
The Fortinet Fabric
What we really like about Fortinet and the capabilities we can bring to customers via Konsultek’s customized security solutions is how their security solutions “fabric” helps ensure seamless coverage across the complete network.
As they put it on their website:
“Fortinet is the only company with security solutions for network, endpoint, application, data center, cloud, and access designed to work together as an integrated and collaborative security fabric. This also means we are the only company that can truly provide you with a powerful, integrated end-to-end security solution across the entire attack surface along any point along the kill chain.
Simply deploying security end to end is not enough. These solutions must work together to form a cooperative fabric, spanning the entire network, linking different security sensors and tools together to collect, coordinate, and respond to any potential threat. And it must do this wherever it occurs, in real time, with no network slowdowns.”
When deployed in existing networks Fortinet overlays on your existing patchwork quilt of security solutions and turns them into a high performance security fabric. This enhances network visibility and security by effectively securing the gaps and seams that previously existed between your specific network security measures.
